SAHER: building and equipping 2,200 water distribution points to provide a sustainable drinking water supply for almost 900,000 Ivorians
SAHER is now a standard-setter for this type of project in Côte d’Ivoire
SAHER is set to build and equip 2,200 water points to provide a sustainable drinking water supply for almost 900,000 people in rural and semi-urban areas in 17 of Côte d’Ivoire’s 31 regions by February 2025. “We are proud that the Côte d’Ivoire Ministry of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene has entrusted us with a project of this magnitude. This contract confirms that we are now one of the leading players in the water supply sector for villages and semi-urban areas in Côte d’Ivoire,” says Wagna MOTA, Director of SAHER.
Specifically, this project, which receives financial backing from the AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK (“Government Social Programme Support Project”), has been assigned to a consortium comprising SAHER (lead partner) and its parent company VERGNET HYDRO. SAHER is to dismantle the existing obsolete superstructures, build 2,200 superstructures (coping stones, walls and apron slabs) and install 2,200 manual pumps. VERGNET HYDRO will supply the 2,200 water pumps along with 2,200 maintenance kits.
